Hmm... my Flagship is supposed to have a camber but was "flat" the day I bought it (manufactering variance...)
You'll have trouble to fit a piece of paper in this "camber".

Not sure if that already counts as experience with flat or if a flat is flatter/different I would demo one anyway before I'd buy one. If I find one

Well, as you said. The Raptor did well, but not particularly good in deep. I guess he saw how effortlessly I was floating traversing flats and at lower speeds while he sunk/had to lean back. Thus the wish for a bigger/better suited board. He always had the "one board has to do it all" philosophy but gets to the point that maybe specific ones would be also a good strategy.
